There is a great deal more to your dog’s behavior than Sit, Down and Stay. General obedience training only conditions your dog to respond to specific stimulus (a conditioned response). You say the command “SIT” (the stimulus), your dog sits (the response) this is a conditioned response.
Does this sound like your dogs behavior? Around the house your dog sits fine, but at the park your dog won’t come to you when you call it, you have to repeat your “SIT” command several times.
This is the typical behavior when all you’ve done is build in some conditioned responses.
Here at the Klub we work with you and the dog, we not only build in the conditioned responses, but we also build in the respect. With the respect, your dog will sit on the first command & come when called, in any environment.
